OMD UK & Channel 4 - Making Rise & Fall Unmissable For 16-34s
OMD UK and Channel 4’s collaboration in promoting the reality show "Rise and Fall” effectively engaged Channel 4's elusive 16-34-year-old audience through a comprehensive and innovative influencer-led approach.
With the aim of empowering ordinary voices and highlighting power dynamics, the campaign seamlessly integrated various media channels into a cohesive strategy. Influencers participated in show-inspired challenges, conducted street interviews, and offered exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses, fostering audience engagement and anticipation. Strategic partnerships with platforms like Reddit and LadBible further amplified the campaign's reach and impact through user-generated content and meme creation.
The campaign's success was a testament to the creative alliances formed between Channel 4, OMD's Social and Influencer Team, and media partners. The unique integrated approach, coupled with the volume of activities, resulted in record-breaking results across various metrics, especially among the target audience, achieving exceptional outcomes through a holistic and integrated approach.
“This integrated campaign is a stunning example of how you bring a show to life offline, and make audiences feel as though they were a part of the plot.”
